The National Games is the most important sporting event in the country. It has its origin in the Indian Olympic Games movement in the first few decades of the last century. The movement culminated in the 9th Indian Olympic Games at Lahore in 1924. The event was known by this name until 1940 when it was held at Bombay as National Games. Kerala is going to hold the National Games for a second time in December 2012. The first occasion was in 1987.

It will cause a churning in the sporting population resulting in the discovery of new talents. National Games will certainly improve the sports infrastructure in the State. It will create awareness among the sporting youth that training under modern facilities can create the required talent for competing in national or international events. 35th National Games will be a boon for further development of sports in Kerala in the coming years.
